If you would like to discuss your idea for a tattoo, the best way to liaise with an artist is by either messaging our Facebook page or by emailing info@blackcattattoo.co.uk.   We will then look at your idea and let you know their thoughts. If you'd prefer to speak to someone in person please pop into the studio and speak to the front desk team, who will be happy to answer any queries you might have.

If you are booking a large tattoo, say upper outer arm, we’d advise you to book 6-12 hours depending upon the intricacy of the design. For a full sleeve or back piece, we’d advise anywhere between 20 and 40 hours, with a minimum gap of 3 weeks in between sittings to allow healing.

We operate a booking system for our senior artist and the way our booking system works is we ask for a deposit to be paid at the time of the booking.  Payment can be made by popping into the studio with cash, alternatively we can take a card payment over the phone, we can take a PayPal payment or a bank transfer.  Our junior artist, Courtney is available for walk-ins but does also take bookings too. 

We also operate a 48-hour cancellation policy, if at any time you miss an appointment or cancel without enough notice you will lose that deposit and all subsequent appointments will be cancelled unless a new deposit is brought in (See full cancellation policy for further details – this can be found either at the bottom of this information or pinned to the top of our Facebook page).

We design custom tattoos.  Customers usually start off an enquiry with proving us with either a google image or the image of an already completed tattoo.  Please note that we'd be able to do something similar to the design you sent and we can use it as a base but I'm afraid that we don't directly copy another artists work or an internet found design.  It’s not fair on the artist who did it originally, it’s actually a breach of copyright and also, it’s also not fair on you.  We'd rather give you a one off unique piece of artwork that no one else has got!  If you want a directly copy then I’m sorry we are not the tattooists for you.

We will work with you on your design to the best of our ability however our decision on artwork is final. We know what will work as a tattoo and what will look good. We have your best interests at heart so please respect us and listen to our advice. Good tattoos take time, if you want something quick and cheap please try somewhere else and we’ll see you in a few months for a cover up!!

When will my design be drawn up? - Our front desk team to liaise with you at the discussion stage or the booking stage to ascertain your ideas for your tattoo design,  They will encourage you to supply us with as much information and reference photos as possible.  

We will already have discussed the fact that we don’t copy other tattoos or internet found designs, however should you have ones that you like, they will attach these to the booking, along with any notes that you have given them.  This will act as a visual guide for the tattooist as to the type of style you like.

I'm afraid that due to the artist’s workloads, your design will only be ready for you to view on the day of your booking itself and not before. Should you wish to make any changes to your design, they can be made on the day of your booking. Nowadays the artists design electronically with iPads and therefore it is relatively easy should you wish to make changes to a design
